Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

Used by permission. The perfect time for Otis to pass from this life came November 4, 2010.

RE: Peter Harden Jr. Myrtle Springs
Not necessary! Thanks for offering!
If you are ever around Foster Cemetery please look for Hogan Moss born 1803. My ggg grandfather. I've searched records and cemetery. Lost track of him between Arkansas and Texas. Found children and in laws there!

RE: Peter Harden Jr. Myrtle Springs
Thanks for adding the obituary. It looks good to me.
The Jr is confusing to me also. The best explanation I can give is that although William Foster Hardin is father of Peter Jr that he was named after his grandfather who died the year before he was born.
Another on is W.F. Harden Jr B 1932- d 1932 which indicates his father is JM Harden on the marker.
I have more information on this tree and will make a few additions.
